Hyderabad: The senior Congress leader and MLA, Mr J.C. Diwakar Reddy, said that the Telangana leaders are agitating for the post of Chief Minister and suggested that the post be shared by different regions to resolve the dispute.
He proposed changes in the administration after the 2014 elections instead of bifurcating the state. Addressing the Seemandhra Congress leaders round-table conference in Vijayawada on Saturday, Mr Diwakar Reddy said the T-leaders intensified the agitation for political mileage and put pressure on the Union government.
Mr Diwakar Reddy expressed apprehensions that leaders of North Andhra will start an agitation for separate state if Telangana state is created. He reminded that the Srikrishna Committee mentioned in its report that some regions in Seemandhra region were more backward than T-region. He felt that development is not possible with bifurcation of the state. Mr Diwakar Reddy said that some leaders fell in the trap of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti chief, Mr K. Chandrasekhar Rao. Now, they were unable to withdraw their resignations. They are reconsidering their hasty decision, he said and advised not to fall prey to KCR. Deccan Chronicle
